Steve Jobs becomes a comic book hero in August
He might not be faster than a speeding bullet or more powerful than a locomotive, but Apple CEO Steve Jobs gives a heck of a keynote speech and is a whiz at introducing new devices to the public. The executive is about to star in his own comic book called "Steve Jobs: Co-founder of Apple". And while he doesn't have a sidekick like Batman's Robin, he does have a partner in the somewhat erratic Steve Wosniak. And while there is no villain as elusive as the Joker, or a death stone like Kryptonite, there is John Sculley.

According to Darren Davis, president of publisher Bluewater Productions, Jobs' story is mythical enough for a comic book hero. "His innovations command front page news, speculation of his health affects the stock market. Not bad for a college dropout," Davis said. CW Cooke, writer of the comic, chimed in by saying that it would be hard to find someone who has influenced the way we do business, interact and communicate as much as Steve Jobs has.

The 32 page comic book was drawn by
Chris Schmidt, with cover art by DC artist Joe Phillips. It will be available in August at a price of $3.99 from comic book stores and bookstores. It can also be purchased online from Amazon, Barnes and Noble and Borders. The publisher has had prior success in this line of work with a 48 page comic on Facebook founder Mark Zuckerbook that is being made into a graphic novel that will sell for $10.99.

I honestly can't decide whether or not the comic book about Stephenie Meyer was more retarded and sad.

Yes. I found it in a Barnes and Noble once in a Twilight showcase. For the sake of the comic they shaved about 150 pounds off her frame. It was hilarious.

Ohh my iHERO! That is exactly what the iSheep will say. They will hop to the local comic/book retailer to get this iComic Book. lol After they read it & feel even more brainwashed, they will sleep with the iComic Book. We all know iSheep love their shepherd Steve Jobs. What better way to get close to him than to sleep with the iComic Book like a teddy bear! Wow these next few years will be great for iSheep, they might get a new beautiful HQ with plenty of green pastures for iSheep to graze & now they got their iHERO shepherd Steve Jobs starring in an ACTION, SUSPENCE, WONDER & AMAZEMENT iComic Book coming to your local comic/bookstore! GET them while their HOT! lol This is the coolest thing EVER. I am now officially jealous! lol

Dude,
You are starting to tread a fine line between opinion and basher. At times I agree with you about isheep followers and how many don’t have a clue. But lately I continually read your posts and they are getting more and more absurd as the days pass.

Don’t make it your mission to bash Apple and its users. Go back to being sensible and having an opinion worth reading. Don’t become the idiots you hate.

davecann2 I am just trying to have fun with this. I mean no harm. I was intentionally being over the top. I thought it was funny. I am so sorry you feel that way. It was all in jest. I don't want to bash anyone. It was silly fun sorry if you got offended. Applefanboy & I have an understanding, we don't take each other too seriously. I thought since they are making a comic book it would be fun to joke. I thought my intent was clear but I guess not. I was being sarcastic & funny at the same time. Sometimes is cool to just joke around & not take ourselves too seriously. Helps the day go by! Sorry man THAT WAS NOT MY GOAL!

You are absolutely right.
I guess I got a little sick of the bashing going on and took it out on a regular. I di understand having fun and purposely causing a stir. It make these board enjoyable. Hell, I am guilty of doing the same.

Any ways, This is my fault. I’m probably going to get bashed now for saying that but whatever…lol

Thanks for making your humor obvious. I’ll continue to enjoy your posts and push back when your bash my beloved iPone =P

Cool I am glad we are on the same page. I would never disrespect anyone. Apple fans are good people. I just call Apple fans that are too fanatical iSheep. Don't get me wrong there are fanatics on both sides. I just like to talk facts & if I am ever wrong I will own it like a man. I will never post something that is inaccurate as FACT when it is clearly wrong. Some iSheep do that, as well as Android fanboys.

You deserve all the respect in the word for that reply! Many individuals (including me at times) can learn by your example.

So wouldnt he be the villian unless your version of a hero abuses the patent system for his own greed and raises a tuss anytime something has a slim resembalance to somthing he did and then copies what he likes and calls it " First ", "New", and "Revoultionary" some hero

No for iSheep the villains are HTC, Samsung, Motorola, & LG. They are like the an evil Fantastic Four who work for the master green robot of DOOM Android! To iSheep shepherd Steve Jobs does nothing wrong, that is why he is the iHERO. Didn't you know that every major innovation was created by Apple. They invented the touch screen, they invented cloud service, they invented EVERYTHING, well as per iSheep & the iHERO shepherd Steve Jobs! lol This iComic Book WILL BE a redefining moment in comic books. Hell after this iSheep will say their iHERO shepherd Steve Jobs invented comic books all together! lol I love this! lol

Good one Zted. It will also utilize a hidden retina scanner to ensure you read the entire book before it will allow you to use your Itool. LOL

If he beats his health issues, he won't need a comic book to be a hero.
